Risk triage, bundling and mitigation roadmaps

Jul 4th, 2019

Risk triage, bundling and mitigation roadmaps shows how to define strategic, tactical risk and develop an actionable risk integrated framework for projects, operations and corporations.

The text constitutes Chapter 8 of the book Global Hot Spots, Caltrop Press. Its title is A Practical Integrated Risk Framework For Projects, Operations And Corporations.

 Risk triage, bundling and mitigation roadmaps

Readers go through a real-life case risk register. They read about a common practice risks assessment and triage (heat map, PIGs, etc.) and approach. In addition, we discuss selection methods.

Examples of Risk Tolerance criteria are presented and discussed.

Risks are classified in tolerable, intolerable but manageable, intolerable and unmanageable, hence strategic. We show how the proposed classification is transparent, repeatable and eliminates arbitrary decisions. The classification enables decision makers to foster strategic tactical and operational planning, enhancing their risk informed decision-making capabilities.

At this point liabilities brought to organizations by risk management approaches using PIGs, risk matrix are discussed. The next step is the rational bundling of risks in view, for example, of captive insurance and other common risk transfer/mitigation procedures.

Finally we develop a case history  to include risk mitigation roadmaps, compare and test them including complex inter-dependencies in a multi-hazard environment. We demonstrate how convergent, scalable, drillable, updatable risk assessments bring value to projects, operations, corporations.

What are the take away from A Practical Integrated Risk Framework For Projects, Operations And Corporations

  1. Determine which risks are tolerable, untolerable but manageable, untolerable and unmanageable, hence of strategic nature. This enhances the operational tactical and strategic planning skills of decision-makers.
  2. Learn how to bundle risks to rationally design captive insurances based on rational risk triages. Finally,
  3. Formulate risk mitigation roadmaps, test them and present their actionable risk integrated framework to top management.
